For many, body wash is superior to bar soap when it comes time to shower. A bottle is easier to use, and the scents are often stronger. Body wash can also be easier on dry skin. Unlike the bar of soap that sits in the shower isolated, body wash is often multipurpose. Some have dual purposes, and can also be used to wash your hair, while others are even more functional and can be used for your household cleaning needs. We rounded up some of our favorites.
